I ment Ben Bergman because he was recommended to me by another attorney. I needed a lawyer who would be flexible and take a down payment and then work with me on a payment arrangements, but also one who would fight for me like I payed double. Ben did just that. At first meeting with Ben I was immediately put at ease. He has a great personality, with an old fashioned and dedicated work ethic. I once called his office at 9:30 at night one evening, and to my surprise it was he Ben who answered the phone at his office and not his answering machine which I had been prepared to leave my message on. Once again like the first time I went in his office he put me instantly at ease and spent time reassuring me that he was doing all he could for me and my case and that I would be just fine. He was right. Ben got the case place for what it was a minor offence. Was given a conditional discharge for one year where the District Attorney wanted to give me a year. Mr. Bergman was able to find something in the law where the District Attorney then agreed to a year conditional discharge. I was so overjoyed that I could not believe it. I must say that I'm truly happy that I found Ben, and his expertise. He was able to give me back my life and a chance to start over on a much better foot. Thank You Ben.

It can be difficult to know who you can trust when you find yourself in a vulnerable position and need help through legal counsel. Often times there is so much at stake that there is fear of being taken advantage of or being misled in such an uncertain time by people who have their own agendas including lawyers. Ben is a human being that takes an enormous amount of pride in representing his clients. He exudes compassion and believed in me when nobody else did. His unwavering focus throughout our time together was directed towards accomplishing what was best for me. He took the time to clearly articulate the process, expectations, the challenges, and direction we were going in. He did it in the most effective and efficient way, knowing and sharing with me what I needed to know and what he did not need to waist my money and time on hypotheticals. He remained focused on the objective and his perseverance and HONEST work ethic is inspiring. I do not say this because Ben got me everything I wanted, (although he did) I say this because I experienced the feeling of confidence knowing Ben was representing me and that meant I was in the position of having somebody in my corner who has MY best interests in mind and has the courage, integrity, knowledge and experience to handle the difficult time I found myself in. I have a tremendous amount of respect for Ben as a lawyer but even more so as a person. He is a Boss. If you need a lawyer for anything, and you have been exposed somehow to Ben's name, do not go anywhere else without at least speaking to him first.

Ben was recommended to me by dear friends of mine. Before my initial meeting, I sent Ben my divorce documents from my trial for review ; along with a letter explaining a little bit about my history. I wanted to make the most of our initial meeting and wanted to give him as much information as possible so that he too could be prepared. By the end of my initial meeting with Ben, I immediately knew I was in very good, capable hands. After a negative experience with my first lawyer, I did not have alot of faith in the legal system. Ben was and is phenomonal. I know I am being well taken care of . I know that he has my, as well as my families best interest in mind. I have found Ben to be hardworking, trustworthy and most importantly, a straightforward and honest human being. My only regret is that i did not have the benefit of his expertise and knowledge the first time around!

Ben is a wonderful lawyer, he was very helpful, researched and worked on my case. I was out of state and he made me feel safe to leave the legal work in his hands. He represented me well, kept me well informed and clearly knew what he was doing. I really enjoyed his energy, he did not treat my case like it was just any other. He reviewed my case and looked at it with fresh eyes, while being very experienced and capable.

My son was charged with a felony charge. Mr. Bergman was supportive and attentive from our first conversation! His concern and contact remained the same with us throughout the ordeal! My son has never been in any trouble, not even a traffic ticket! Mr. Bergman was compassionate to this and due to his experience, we feel had the ability to guide and consult my son with the best defense available. He was honest with us in every regard. His work was all well developed and carefully conducted. His summation/closing argument before the Jury was exceptional, I have never seen anything like it in my entire career of Human Services !! We were very pleased because it made all the difference in the results of my sons case--he was found Not Guilty on all charges!!!! We are more than grateful for Mr. Bergmans assistance and feel blessed he was our Attorney. Please note all his staff were just as concerned and respectful to us in this time of need. We will recommend the services of Benjamin Bergman in the future!

From the first contact through the resolution of a complicated criminal defense case Attorney Ben Bergman was responsive, knowledgeable and highly effective. He was able to secure a positive outcome keeping us well informed and involved at all times. Attorney Bergman was recommended to me by someone in the community with some legal insight who said she would select no one else if it was her case. She was right, I am very glad to have been able to secure Attorney Bergman's services and would highly recommend him and his firm to all in need.
